FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widespread ways to transmit files between a computer and a server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software will handle the rest. There’re a number of pros of employing FTP, including the option to restart an upload/download in case there is some problem with the FTP connection and the option to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other info, which makes it the very best option especially when you have to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you have created directly from them, without the need to use third-party software.
